For the implementation of the Common Agricultural Policy, the European Commission needs timely information on the agricultural production to be expected in the current season. This is a main concern of the MARS-project (Monitoring Agricultural ResourceS) of the AGRI4CAST and FOODSEC units of the Directorate General Joint Research Center (JRC) of the European Commission in Ispra (Italy). Available products include: Graphs and maps of weather indicators based on observations and numerical weather models Graphs and maps of crop indicators based on agro-meteorological models Graphs and maps of vegetation indices and cumulated dry matter based on remote sensing images
